Hush, Hush

Hush, Hush - Becca Fitzpatrick UPDATE 01/14/11: Loses more stars because I finally found a YA paranormal romance about angels that is, quite frankly, a bazillion times better then any other YA angel book out on the market. It's called [b:Unearthly|7488244|Unearthly (Unearthly, #1)|Cynthia Hand|http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/51HX3-IBqlL._SL75_.jpg|9621771]. You should read [b:Unearthly|7488244|Unearthly (Unearthly, #1)|Cynthia Hand|http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/51HX3-IBqlL._SL75_.jpg|9621771]. (You're welcome.)

Apparently Fallen Angels are the new Vampires, which is alright by me. I'm tired of vampires, especially the really lame sparkly ones that do little more then stalk, act like jerks and/or brood. I've noticed that there are more and more books on the market about fallen angels, and I've read a few (Fallen by Lauren Kate, Eternal by Cynthia Leitich Smith and I'm going to go ahead and count The Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare even though it's technically about nephilim). This book and The Mortal instruments series actually make the whole angel thing somewhat interesting.

I might have given this book more stars--based on the the mild entertainment factor--if the love interest hadn't been named Patch (Patch? Patch??? Seriously? COME ON!). I hate that no one, throughout the duration of the book asks,"Is Patch really your name? REALLY???". Annoying name aside, I'd say this book is OK. Yeah, it's total paranormal garbage--my guilty pleasure--but I found it somewhat entertaining nonetheless.
